For those in the Vancouver area, or those attending the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Vancouver in June, FYI I am teaching a two part workshop entitled: "An Introduction to Social Network Analysis" on June 2nd, 2019.

Workshop I: Theory, Concepts, Research Design and Data Collection

The morning workshop will provide an introduction to social network concepts, theories, and substantive problems. A brief history of SNA will be given and some research examples will be provided. Emphasis will also be given to data collection, particularly social survey methods. This part of the workshop will consider a variety of related methodological issues such as measurement, sampling, data analysis, and ethics, as well as the linkage of these issues to data collection. Different types of data collection techniques will be illustrated such as the name generator, position generator, and name roster. The different opportunities and constraints associated with data collection for whole versus ego-networks will be considered as well as differences between one-mode and two-mode networks will be described.

Workshop II: Analyzing Social Network Data Using UCINET

The afternoon workshop will focus on data management, descriptive social network statistics (e.g., network centrality, density, cliques, etc.), software (e.g. UCINET), and visualization (e.g. Netdraw). The main focus will be on using data with UCINET. Limited attention will be given to visualization, but some examples will be provided focusing on Netdraw, and possibly some alternative visualization packages (such as Pajek, and Visone).
